There is a great opportunity when becoming a member of The Business Community, you get the chance to book a 10-minute presentation slot at any of the business networking meetings. The only criteria is that it needs to be educational, not a sales pitch for your business - an ideal way to raise your profile within The Business Community and "show off" your knowledge and experience.
It doesn't have to be a Powerpoint presentation, screens/projectors and flipcharts are available at most venues or you could just orate without the use of either!
Tips for your presentation
- Share your knowledge/skill/advice
- If using slides – suggest no more than 10 (sometimes just standing up and presenting; maybe with a flipchart – can work better)
- No need to cover more than 5-7 points
- Allow some time for questions
- Consider handouts for delegates (at least in electronic format)
- Promote your presentation to people in your network so they can attend the meeting your at; in doing so raising your profile
I started my own HR business about 5 years ago and have been a member of The Business Community for almost the same length of time. Not only have I gained business from networking with the group but I've also found like-minded and supportive business owners who are always willing to listen and offer their advice. It is great value for money and I'd highly recommend giving it a go.Sue Pardy - face2faceHR
It is the best networking group I have ever been part of. The other members have given me such a warm welcome into the community and they are all supportive towards your business. The way Paul Green has structured the business community is fantastic and very well thought through. There is a whole host of opportunities to give your business exposure.Joseph Mogale - Strategic Web Success

I've been part of this business networking group since first stepping out into business on my own in 2016. It has been a fabulous group to be part of not just because of the referrals I've had but also because of the fantastic support you get from the other members. Highly recommended.Russell Parker - QRB Management Consulants
